The Diary Keepers: Untold Stories of WWII in the Netherlands
Hosted By: Maven
Why did seventy five percent of the Dutch Jewish community perish in the war, while in other Western European countries the proportions were significantly lower? Based on select writings from a collection of more than two thousand Dutch diaries written during World War II, The Diary Keepers illuminates a part of history we haven’t seen in quite this way before, from the stories of a Nazi sympathizing police officer to a Jewish journalist who documented daily activities at a transport camp. Journalist and author Nina Siegal explores her family’s history and shares her quest to learn what happened to the Jewish people of the Netherlands and keep their memory alive.
Join AJU’s Rick Richman in conversation with Nina Siegal as they open the diaries of ordinary citizens to understand the nature of resistance, the workings of memory, and the ways we reflect on, commemorate, and re-envision the past.
